Household Fire Hazards You Didn’t Know About

Fire Hazards in the Home

While you know the basics of home safety (don’t smoke in bed, don’t leave candles unattended, and don’t leave the home when the oven is on), there are some fire hazards you may be missing. Though those fire dangers are no joke, there are some other surprising hazards that may be lurking in your home. Check out these lesser-known fire starters so you can keep your home safe.

Dust Collection

Dust builds up quickly and can make the perfect kindling, especially clumps that accumulate near electrical sockets and appliances. All it takes is one spark to light up dust before it spreads to nearby curtains and furniture. Ensure that you sweep floors thoroughly and often, and wipe away dust from ceiling fans, behind dressers, and underneath the bed.

Oil-Stained Material

Materials that are stained with cooking oil, grease, gasoline, or cleaning agents can run the risk of causing a fire when running through the dryer. Anything that has grease or oil on it should be washed a few times to ensure there are no flammable remnants.

Glass Fixtures

Household glassware can have the same effect as shining sunlight through a magnifying glass to burn paper. Be careful of where you keep your fish tank, mirror, and vases. In short, ensure they are all kept away from the windows and skylights.

Homeowners insurance is designed to help your house and wallet in the event of a home fire. Ensure you have optimum coverage by contacting the team at Little & Sons Insurance Services today.
